GURPS Day Summary April 22- April 28, 2016

Thursday is GURPSDay, being posted from Bangkok, Thailand, and below you can find most of the blog activity from the last seven days. We had a few script problems that I’d really hoped had been worked out, but I was pushing my luck and testing my wife’s patience as it was having her remote-run the script from over 13,000 km away.

Over the last week, as of 10pm CST, there have been 37 GURPS-Related posts from our list of 38 blogs that have popped up on the radar screen. That’s a really light week, so once again I question my script – I think we might have missed a day, in which case I’ll debug and update when I get home on Saturday night. I know I’ve seen more than this!

Not every blog posts about GURPS every week, but some are ridiculously prolific! The list is randomized, so different bloggers will be highlighted at the top of the post each week. For this week, I reached back and got the last 25 posts for our newcomer, Chain Link and Concrete, as well. 

As always, if you’re interested in having your blog consolidated here, navigate over to The Instructions Page and drop me a line.

Chain Link and Concrete (M. Eversberg II)

RogerBW’s Blog (Roger Bell-West)

Game Geekery (“Warren “”Mook”” Wilson”)

  • Creating “Beware the Boogeyman” – Part 1 (4/27/16) – As another convention approaches, I am hastily prepping my game. This time around it is a tale of the magical protectors who keep children safe from nightmares and evil as they sleep, and I continue the “Adventure Creation” series by talking about how that game goes from the spark of an idea to a ready-to-run adventure.

Fragments of the Last War (Bryan Timms)

Mailanka’s Musings (Daniel Dover)

Let’s GURPS (Pseudonym)

Ravens N’ Pennies (Christopher R. Rice)

Insidious GURPS Planning (Mr. Insidious)

  • GURPS Fail: Garrotes and Targeted Attack (4/27/16) – Garrote has a funky interaction with a technique introduced in Tactical Shooting that bugs me.
  • GURPS Fail: Digital Possession (4/23/16) – The Possession Advantage doesn’t really work well when you’re talking about taking over sessile computers in a modern setting without robots and androids running around.

    1. Give me 48 hours to get back in the country. We had to remote-run the script from 9,000 miles away, and ran into issues. You're on blogger; I know they're fixable. If Jeffro can't do it shortly, I will.

    1. In my experience with RSS it's not unusual for some of the server connections to fail, especially if you make lots of connections to the same cluster. (I see errors with all my RSS feeds from Blogger at least once a week or so.)

      The best work-round I know is to run the gatherer multiple times and combine all the results.

  1. Yeah, pretty sure I had a GURPS-tagged post this week, and although it doesn't have a lot of GURPS-specific content I think it would be worth including. I'm informally announcing a self-published project (a new "how to build interstellar settings, including star systems and planets" book) that I imagine GURPS GMs would find useful. I'll check back in a couple of days and see what's up.
